Scotland is one of the best countries in the world for exploring by open canoe.
With hundreds of miles of paddleable lochs and rivers to take advantage of it can often be hard to decide on where to go. Our expeditions & wilderness journeys are designed by our guiding team to show off what our fantastic country has to offer in amazing open canoe journeys.

What you need to bring with you.
Not too much but not too little!?
It’s always a real challenge when packing for expeditions to decide what is needed and what is unnecessary, on this trip, we’re going to take care of the food, but you may still want to bring some snacks and extras.
We’re big fans of keeping our kit fairly light as if we have to portage the lighter the kit the easier the task, so let us break it down then.
